Special Child

LABEL: Sea-West
SERIAL#: SWLP - 7822
DATE: 1979 - 01


Front cover of album jacket originally featured an abstract photo of artist James on a motorcycle. In September, 1979 the lp was repacked/reissued  with the motorcycle pic replaced with a frontal facial shot of artist wearing a "Lone Ranger" mask. The change was made "in order to make more of a high impact visual awareness to bear on the album."

Stephen, a twenty seven year old singer/songwriter, currently residing in Sumner, Washington, says the album tunes are basically rock oriented with some having a new wave feel. Tempos vary.  James, who is currently performing around the Puget Sound area with the group Pilgrim, characterizes the focus as somewhat philosophical.

A variation of the above article originally appeared in NORTHWEST DISC-COVERIES and SOUND REPORT  Volume 4 #10.

Note: James later died of cancer.
